KCL Friday Finds

Welcome to KCL Friday Finds! Today's shopping guide is full of affordable beauty-themed stocking stuffers. Don't get me wrong, I love to get candy and chocolates in my stocking, but I also love other gifts, like a cute new pair of socks and especially little beauty products.

A beauty stocking stuffer doesn't have to cost a lot. Between individual sheets masks and bath bombs  to lip balm and nail polish, you can find so many great options under $10. Several options below are even under $5.

The most universal of stocking stuffers, aside from candy, is lip balm. When given as a gift, go with something more luxurious than a Cherry Chapstick from the grocery store. My favorite lip balms at Bua Organics are all-natural and organic and come in options like Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, and Jojoba Oil. For a moisturizing lip balm with the addition of a fun scent, try Einstein Bath Co., for flavors like Sangria, Marshmallow, and Pink Frosting.

A wonderful way to give a luxury beauty…

The Prettiest Floral Displays


Nothing makes a room more chic and pretty than a touch of fresh flowers here and there. Whenever my husband buys me a bouquet, which is often, because he is very romantic 🙂, I like to keep them in a vase on our dining table. But, as I drool over all of the floral design pages on Instagram, I do think of getting a bit more creative with my flower arrangements. And really, you don't have to be an expert to get a beautiful look. If you start with the right containers and know where to place them, you can create a very chic display in your own home. Here are a few easy and beautiful ideas.

Think outside the vase. I love this idea the most, because you can incorporate it in so many different ways. I've done it with larger arrangements in a decorative watering can, and I've used it for mini single displays in a fancy teacup or old candle holders. It's a great way to achieve big impact in a small space. For example, one of those mini candle holder arrangements pictured above would be so pretty on a vanity tray or on top of a stack of chic coffee table books.

Experiment with submerged arrangements. With tall vases, like the cylindrical ones pictured above, you can fully or partly submerge flowers for a unique display. This look works best with multiple arrangements clustered together on a console table or buffet. You can add decorative vase fillers; like shells, pebbles or fruit. I love how the one above has a large leaf wrapped around the bouquet. Here is a great step-by-step DIY for submerged arrangements, and here is some beautiful inspiration.

Arrange a group of bud vases. This is the best way to make a centerpiece on a budget. You can make a small bouquet go a long way with several small vases. Group little jars or vases of different shapes and sizes on a mantle or as a centerpiece. Pictured: SIGNALS Small Cut Glass Vases - Set of Five


This last one is my absolute favorite, because it's so easy, but looks so much more beautiful than a typical vase of flowers. And how romantic...flowers and candles in one. It's the perfect centerpiece. Get the look here >.
